    The track designs are great, the controls are tight and it looks and runs fantastically. However, it's a little too easy for the most part and the car and tire selection aspects have problems.
  2. There are elements of Sega Rally Revo that provide some enjoyable moments, but too many irritations and issues get in the way of those moments.
  3. The controls are easy enough for almost anyone to play and the visuals look solid on the PSP’s screen. Unfortunately the lack of customization might be enough to turn some gamers away.
  4. An enjoyable title, just not one that will last you very long or give you good value for money.
  5. An excellent, thrilling and fearlessly arcade driving affair that matches its technical brilliance with delightful game mechanic touches.
  6. SEGA Rally Revo is a great game, infinitely more fun than its console cousin. The PSP version has incredible graphics, intuitive controls, and a fun casual design that will keep you playing for months to come.
  7. The old king of rally is back. Who needs realism when the cars are this fun to drive and the world is so wonderfully vivid? What the game could have used is more variety in its tracks – and more tracks. [Oct 2007]

    While the new Sega Rally offers a satisfying rally experience, it seems to lack the spirit of the two arcade originals – all of the parts are there, but the soul of the series just doesn’t seem to shine through.

    The point of the matter is that Sega Rally Revo brings the series back to life without dumping what made it so damn crucial in the first place.

    Bugbear adheres to everything that makes the franchise stellar, rather than trying to break any new ground. [Issue#158, p.84]
  11. Visually, it's impressive for the PSP. The cars are the highlight of these nice visuals with smooth models and, while the textures of the tracks/backgrounds look slightly jagged in a typically PSP manner, they're still nice looking for the system's capabilities.
  12. With a proper multiplayer setup that allows for ad-hoc, infrastructure and gamesharing, and gameplay that engrosses you from the start to finish[line], Sega Rally Revo really does have everything rally fans, racing fans, and fans of the arcade franchise will love. Best of all, you can take it on the road with you.
  13. The high-speed action never takes its foot off the gas, but you'll be hard-pressed to find a reason to continue playing for long. [Dec 2007, p.85]

    Rally racing is all about control, and the PSP's controls leave a lot to be desired. Perhaps that's not Sega's fault (it's Sony's), but the rally games and the PSP D-pad or analog stick are a bad, frustrating mix.

    The handling of the cars feels quite good and it reminds me a lot of the original on the Sega Saturn. There are not really enough tracksThe handling of the cars feels quite good and it reminds me a lot of the original on the Sega Saturn. There are not really enough tracks though and the single player mode is quite short. The specialist cars that you unlock seem to be always worse than the stock cars (harder to handle and have no tire choice), there's really not much point to ever using them. The graphics are good by PSP standards. Full Review »

    Low on content and not really a rally game, as you race 5 other cars at the same time (more motorcross). Visuals not okay and so too is this game.

    This is great, takes me back to the days when sega rally was first launched in the arcades and i'm as hooked now as I was then. Graphics This is great, takes me back to the days when sega rally was first launched in the arcades and i'm as hooked now as I was then. Graphics are great, the cars, tracks and AI cars you race against are awesome. the only gripe is that it may be too easy to master for long term playability. Full Review »
